Healthcare industry has many facets and one of them is senior living facilities. For achieving high caring standards for senior citizens, one must consider many factors. One of those essential factors is having a manual, paper-based process for senior citizen facilities. As you have seen in our previous articles how the manual paper system slows down businesses.
Paper-based filing system has been the choice for many years. Your competitors are already using an assisted digital health care system. To keep up with the competition stop relying on the outdated systems.
Cloud-based technology has benefited hospitals and medical practitioners succeed with nursing homes. Living facilities have recently started adopting the technology as well. And like those health care providers, these facilities have discovered a wealth of benefits that are beyond the filing system.
Better Coordination Across Health Providers
Employees of senior care center need to coordinate and collaborate with health care system like hospitals, pharmacies, insurance providers and labs on a regular basis. DMS software enables this communication easily by streamlining the processes. This will maximize workflows and minimize health risks for your residents.
No compliance issues
As per HIPAA, any individual or organization who holds, processes or has access to an individual’s health information is responsible for protecting that information. A digital file management system will help make compliance procedures fuss-free.
HIPAA rules also require organizations to have a data backup plan for securing a patients personal health. With a digital document management system, you can back up all your files in the cloud which also fulfills your HIPAA obligations.
A Healthier Approach to Care
A digital file management system will spare more time for caregivers to interact and attend to the unique needs. When all the patient information is handy with the digital storage nurses and clinicians can pull patient data in seconds, without searching through a pile of documents.
There are no medical errors
By using a Digital filing system, you eliminate the risk of loss or theft of any of the files or data of any patient. In the paper-based process, there can be a risk of prescribing a wrong drug or inducing the wrong dosage of medication that has adverse effects on the patient’s body.
Instead of searching through 100 different patients charts to find that one right person, nurses can search on the digital database in a few seconds of time.
